I was reading http://news.google.com. I found out that GW wants to renew the double-standing Patriot Act! How absurd. I think I mentioned how I disagree with this act because it violates many vital human rights. Most importantly, it allows the government to tap your lines if you are a “suspected terrorist”. They don’t give you a proper trial, instead you have a military trial where a lot of your rights are not provided. I’m not going to go into specifics about it. You can refer to my previous GW rant about this matter.
The other news that caught my eye is the mine explosion in Northeast China. Seems like China is having it’s own little Industrial Revolution (about 100 years late). I’m pretty sure there are more people dead. China likes to censor the news, so who knows the real facts.
In other less important news, only 35 minutes until this dreaded commercialized holiday is over. It’s just another reason to spend money, buy greeting cards and eat a lot of chocolate. The good thing about this holiday is that tomorrow, all those Valentine’s candies and chocolates will be on sale. So run to your nearest CVS, Rite Aid, Duane Reade or Eckerd to catch them while they last!
I’m using my lovely laptop, and it is quite wonderful. Good night everyone! :tired:
I just wanted to say that the purpose of the Moby quote entry was because I needed something with a lot of text and I think Moby sums up my thoughts pretty well. GW claims he will unite everyone in his second term. I really cannot listen to anymore of his lies. It would be great if GW is successful in removing American troops from Iraq within his next term. I won’t be surprised if we’re at war with another nation though. Any guesses who our next target is? The good thing is, I’m pretty sure whoever is elected in 2008, can’t be half as bad as GW. I wish Mr. President good luck in uniting all Americans. He has a lot to prove.
now, more than ever, your neighbor to the south(aka-the blue states)needs you. most of us living in the northern and western parts of the united states don’t feel very connected to the rest of the u.s, so can we bring our states and become part of canada?
we have a lot of money and some interesting cities and we promise not to be too much trouble.
the benefits to you:
a-in one fell swoop you can have southern california and new york city! surfing in canada! suddenly the u.n is on canadian soil! broadway is suddenly in canada! you could then say that canada is the birthplace of jazz and hip-hop!
b-money. cold hard cash. the red states in the u.s might have the voting power, but guess who has the money? yup, your friendly neighborhood blue states.
so when/if you accept our offer you will instantly become the richest country in the world! that sounds pretty good, right?
c-karma. accepting this offer will give you more good karma than you’d know what to do with(because you would instantly make 120 million people VERY happy).
so you get warm beaches, tons of cash, and good karma. who can say no to that?
please let us know if you accept the offer. given our enthusiasm to join canada it’s safe to say that the details of the offer could probably be worked out in an afternoon.
thank you very much,
p.s-just to put your minds at ease, we do know that we can’t bring our assault weapons with us.’
